Re: Logging ethanol content

Both the ford and gm sensors are frequency based. They use the frequency to derive ethenol % and pulse width to measure fuel temp. The gm one is usually used as it was more widely available, and uses more sensible values. The gm sensor uses 50hz to 150hz to directly correlate to ethenol %. The ford ...

Re: PSA about BE version 5.136 and Sailorbob Defs

I got both editions from the update program that's included with BE. I've often found that the website is often a last priority for updates. The only thing I can gather is that the whole data logging system within how BE interacts with def files has changed. The problem you will have is the data log...

PSA about BE version 5.136 and Sailorbob Defs

Hello, Just to inform everyone, a new BE version rolled out recently. As of this writing it breaks compatibility with all of Sailorbobs definitions. So if you use Sailorbobs defs, you will need to stay on version 5.122 or earlier. This appears to be the last version that is still supports Sailorbobs...

Re: basket case dropped on my lap

Core Tuning shows the GGL2 as CDAN3, not CDAN4. I also did not see GGL2 listed in the Ford Stratagies listing that i have, but 96 Mustangs are CDAN3. One reprieve is that the hardware code is the same from what i can tell, so reflashing it or installing a chip with one of the CDAN4 bins would be you...

Re: sn95 5.0 falling on its face

Everything I posted about will cause your setup to run less than optimal.

When something doesn't go right they have no way to i...

I believe it was a loophole that is being exploited. Something about having to be stock in appearance or something like that. It's been years since I was told about them. Can't remember the exact rule that was being worked around.

It's not an official product moates sells, but he developed that device for certain racing classes that banned external chips or chips that plug in. So by replacing the internal rom chip with your tune it would be possible to pass tech inspection. It's supposed to be able to be programmed while it's...

Re: DIY Injector Flow Bench

Have you considered something like an IRLB3034? We use them in airsoft applications (DC brushed motor, imagine the electrical noise) due to their high current capacity and "low" RDSon. They also have a cast-in TVS circuit, though its small. Also, I may adapt this to my Mega2560, if it has the timer...

I say simulate RPM only because it's easier to understand by most to say RPM than some arbitrary frequency.

Re: Fuel pressure on an 04 Crown Vic Turbo

Without knowing what mods you have done, and what changes to the tune, it could be something simple. The newer eec-v ecus use deltap functions to adjust injector flow settings based on fuel pressure. So assuming your injector data is correct for any new injectors you may have installed, or your usin...

Re: Tuning Marine Ford 351W GT40

More than likely the ecu is drawing more power than your USB can deliver. That would explain why it won't register until it's barely connected to the ecu. It's always a good idea to power the ecu externally so you can make sure you get a clean read. Powering externally will also eliminate issues wit...

Re: MPG MODE F350 V10 sct pro racer thoughts needed

Sct is displaying the fuel slopes in lbs/sec instead of the more common lbs/hr. Divide the slope values i posted above by 3600 and you will see they are essentially the same. The battery offset is the same from what I can tell, so i do not believe there is much issue with your injector values.
